If you are carrying out major development work, building in, on, over or under land and/or making a change in the use of the building, you will need to obtain full planning consent before commencing your project.

  • flat Applications to change the number of dwellings (flat conversions, building a separate house in the garden)
  • Changes of use to part or all of the property to non-residential (including business) uses
  • Anything outside the garden of the property (including stables if in a separate paddock)
